Pictured: a stunning £ 330 million trimaran that looks like Poseidon’s trident, with huge inclined sails (so it can rotate under bridges), a beach club and two swimming pools
- The ship – known as the Trident – has two masts that can tilt 70 degrees forward and rotate 360 degrees
- Passengers can enjoy amenities including a large piano bar and lounge, a helipad and a swimming pool.
- Accommodation on board includes a suite for the owner, a VIP suite, 10 guest cabins and cabins for up to 20 crew members
An impressive trimaran worth £ 330 million ($ 400 million) with huge sails giving it the appearance of a Poseidon trident, was unveiled.
Given the resemblance of the spear of the Greek god, the hull boat 328 feet (100 m) was named “Trident” and uses two rigid inclined sails, reaching a height of 228 feet, to sail the ocean.
They can lean 70 degrees forward to reduce the draft of the air – the distance from the water surface to the highest point on the ship – from 228 feet (72 m) to 138.5 feet (42 m) and allow the ship to pass under most bridges. In addition, each mast can rotate 360 degrees to maximize wind power.

Inside the six-deck steel-aluminum vessel, designed by California designer Steve Kozloff, the multi-level living space occupies more than 5,100 square feet (474 square meters) and has huge windows for panoramic views.
A large piano bar and lounge on the upper deck act as the center of the ship, from which a network of tracks will lead you to other sections.
In the bow of the case is the owner’s room of 682 square feet (64 square meters). At the same time VIP suites can be found in the corresponding bow of the two smaller buildings, and there are 10 more guest cabins located on outriggers, as well as accommodation for up to 20 crew members.

The ship’s two free-standing masts can tilt 70 degrees forward to reduce air thrust – the distance from the water’s surface to the ship’s highest point – from 228 feet (72 m) to 138.5 feet (42 m) and allow it to pass under most bridges
Each of the Trident masts can rotate 360 degrees to maximize wind force
The trimaran is equipped with two helipads and two outrigger pools
At the stern of the main building there is a beach club on a full spike with retractable decks for even more space and two “cribs” in the main building – one in front, the other in the stern.
Meanwhile on the supports, there are two helipads and two pools.
What’s more, there’s a full-spike garage that has room for two tenders, a Nemo submarine from U-Boat Worx and other water toys.
The multi-level living quarters of the ship occupy more than 5,100 square feet (474 square meters) and have huge windows throughout, which offer panoramic views
While the Trident can develop 12 knots (14 miles per hour) under sail, it is also equipped with a hybrid (diesel-electric) system that allows for a top speed of 17 knots. The trident can cover 6,700 nautical miles when moving at 14 knots (16 miles per hour) on a single diesel
Trident – the latest model in a series of “complex” sailing yachts Kozlov “Goliath”
The vessel is equipped with a crane system that can assist with loading and unloading of facilities, and there are six self-inflating lifeboats located below the main deck.
In terms of speed, the Trident can develop 12 knots (14 miles per hour) under sail. It is also equipped with a hybrid (diesel-electric) system that allows you to develop a maximum speed of 17 knots. It can cover 6,700 nautical miles, moving at 14 knots (16 miles per hour) on the diesel floor alone.
Trident – which is now a concept – is the latest model in a series of “sophisticated” sailing yachts Goliath from Kozlov, which also includes models Elegante, Glory and Galleon.
